Hostels/Etc.

Hostel Costel

Web info: This 90 years old villa has been completely renovated by us and transformed into the warm and friendly Hostel Costel. There are 3 shared bedrooms and one exquisite double room besides various common areas (living, chill-lounge, terrace and garden). If you are just passing by or staying longer this is the best place to start your trip through Timisoara or Romania.

Leif’s take: This place just opened in 2011 and I haven’t personally visited them yet. It sounds like they’ve done an incredible amount of work and really get the concept of running a hostel. Give them a try (and let me know how it goes!).

Hotel Moara cu Noroc
Tel: +40 (0) 256 214 203
Calea Lipova, Str. Lirei nr. 4
Leif’s take: Timisoara has an embarrassing lack of budget accommodations. This place is neither central nor easy to get to, but it’s the best value in town. Rooms are small with OK beds. No breakfast. To get here, take trolleybus 14 from center (approx 10 min) or from the train station (approx 20min), alight at the first stop after passing two cemeteries on consecutive blocks on the left hand side. The stop will have a blue ‘Melinda Impex steel’ sign above it. Cross the street and walk about 100 meters down alley Str Lirei (which is unsigned, so look for the electrical line tower and head down the nearly alley). Look for the white and blue building on the right.

Pension Casa Leone
Tel. +40 (0) 256 292 621
B-dul Eroilor 67
Leif’s take: This is a lovely seven room pension with individually decorated rooms. They give a 5% discount to holders of LP books. Take tram No 8 from the train station, alighting at the ‘Deliblata’ station, then walk one block northeast to B-dul Eroiloror. Likewise, trams 4 & 6 from the center also carry you here. (Or call ahead to arrange transport). Breakfast not included. Free wi-fi.

Hotel Cina Banatul
Tel. +40 (0) 256 490 130
B-dul Republicii 3-5
Leif’s take: This place was under massive renovation when I last visited. Look for new rooms and prices in 2010.

Youth Hostel

Piata Huniade 3
Leif’s take: An institutional, but ideally located youth hostel just a block off of Piata Victoriei. Enter on on Str M. Eminescu. It’s generally clean, but the blankets and beds may test some travellers. Book in advance since it tends to fill up. No breakfast.
